Gov. Chris Christie: Still not clear why train was speeding

Posted: Updated:

HOBOKEN, N.J. (AP) --New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says it's still not clear why a New Jersey Transit commuter train was traveling so fast when it crashed in Hoboken, killing one and injuring more than 100.

During an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," the Republican said there were several possible reasons, such as engineer error, a medical emergency or a mechanical failure. He said people should let the National Transportation Safety Board "do their work," adding that "you let the facts lead you to the appropriate conclusion."

NTSB officials say it has interviewed the engineer, but declined further comment.

Christie also noted the investigation was being delayed in part because debris from the crash has prevented investigators from reaching all the train cars.

The NTSB will hold a briefing at 4 p.m. Sunday.
